The MuCell® method – lower weight and increased mould stability.

MuCell® is a process to physically foam thermoplastics, which combines technical and economic objectives. Besides weight reduction, it also provides improved dimensional stability of the moulded parts. This also allows sink marks to be reduced. To enhance innovative output, conventionally manufactured plastic components have to compete again and again. The customer’s demands are clearly defined: More functionality with reduced weight, and cost control at the same time. The only way to correctly interpret these market demands and offer solutions that are economical in the long run is to embrace new technologies in a responsible and efficient manner.

This is why Pöppelmann K-TECH® opted for the MuCell® process a few years ago. MuCell® is a process for the physical foaming thermoplastics. By introducing foaming agent directly to the plastic melt, micro-cellular structures form in the component. One of the strongest arguments in favour of MuCell® is the combination of technical and commercial objectives. The reduction in weight is just a significant added bonus. The functional advantages, which include improved dimensional stability of the moulded parts, are of greater significance. This also allows sink marks to be reduced.

The advantages of the MuCell® process at a glance:

  • Economical. Production on machines with lower locking force.
  • Reliable. Reproducible machine parameters.
  • Light. Component density reduction.
  • Dimensional stability. Injected gas ensures reduced distortion.
  • Quick dimensional accuracy. Thanks to additional pressure in the tool.
